i’ve let them slip once
almost let it happen twice

you wiped every single one off
held me close to your chest
kissed me and asked me not to cry

now i see i made a mistake
i’ve seen how beautiful i look
especially when salty waters run down

my tears are not for everyone to see
’cause they don’t understand the feeling
they seem to always think it’s’ cause of sadness

my tears won’t come across your eyes
you’ll start to think that i’m not human
as i’ll only be smiling endlessly
